2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, After getting all the paperwork together and getting prepared for the interview. My husband's birth Certificate is nowhere to be found, we are searching all over the house, I know we have, we made copies to send together with the package. Question now is, what I found was the Certificate of Live Birth which is the same but is not issued by the State is issued by the Health Department where he was born. We have ordered a certified copy of the long Birth Certificate, but it is going to take 15-19 days. Has anybody used the Certificate of Live birth before, and had any problems? Thank You for your help..

I think that should work. Where I come from, back in those days nobody cared for Birth-certificates and the only proof we had was from the Governments Birth And Naturalization form and that too would get issued way later when the child would start going to school. All I submitted was a copy and its translations. I dont have the original but have the original certified translation that I am taking to the interview next week. Different countries have different methods of birth records and USCIS recognizes that. As long as you can prove your birth date with some official document, you are good to go.
